Summer can be a trying time for any parent. Why not get your kids in the kitchen?
Chances are at this point in the summer you've already heard plenty of choruses of "I'm bored," and you can't justify another marathon Minecraft session. Whatever happened to the days of heading out on your bike after breakfast and only popping back in for dinner before testing the limits of your mom's neighborhood yell? I digress...
It's only logical that if your kids need something to do in the summer, they should join you in some household tasks.
We've been told time and time again that kids eat more if they help make the meal, so what better time to start than those long (OMG, so long...) summer days!
Try these recipes, from sweet to savory, breakfast to dessert, with your kiddos!
Peanut Butter Banana Blender Muffins
Using a blender makes these Peanut Butter Banana Blender Muffins a cinch to prepare (and clean up).
Green Chile Egg Taquitos
Have your kids make breakfast for the week with these Green Chile Egg Taquitos. Bigger kids can cook while the smaller ones can do the rolling!
Homemade Little Debbie Iced Brownies
Little Debbie Brownies are a perennial kid favorite, so why not make them at home? Brownies are a great recipe for beginning bakers, too.
Kids love pizza, and they especially love choosing their own toppings. Even if you don't have a toaster oven, you can make these personal pizzas in a jiffy.
Pepperoni Pizza Pinwheels
Speaking of pizza, these adorable pinwheels are a lesson in puff pastry (and perhaps portion control). They're great for movie night!
